Scream for our team!
Kea and the New Zealand Olympic Committee (NZOC) want to invite you personally to be part of the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham!
Commonwealth Games CEO Katie Sadleir says this year’s Commonwealth Games are shaping up to be the event of the European summer. 4,500 athletes from 72 nations and territories will head to the English city for 11 days of spectacular sport.
“What this games will be doing is, in the safest way possible, creating an environment where we will be bringing athletes, fans and support staff, from all across the world together for the first time in a long time. There is going to be a huge buzz of culture, sport and entertainment. the slogan of the games is ‘Bring it On’ and that’s exactly what’s going to happen.”
There are a number of Kiwi involved in the organisation of event. Along with Katie, UK New Zealander of the Year and world renowned choreographer Corey Baker will be choreographing the opening ceremony.
Birmingham 2022 takes place from July 28th to August 8th and New Zealand Team Supporters Packages are on sale now for a limited time. The packages include accommodation, event tickets and entry to the ‘pop up’ New Zealand House.
New Zealand House will be located at the stunning Edgbaston Golf Club in the heart of Birmingham and provides the perfect place to network with other Kiwi while supporting the NZ team on the big screen.
Katie is urging all Kiwi to get involved and support the NZ team. With borders reopening it’s hoped that Kiwi fans will be encouraged to make the most of the event.
“It has been challenging for everyone for all sorts of reasons over the past two years and we understand that. For our athletes just qualifying for the games has been so full of obstacles. I would urge fans to get behind the games and our team. Reach out, connect and support those who have made it, the Games are really all about the connection to people.”
If you would like to attend the event New Zealand Team Supporters Packages are on sale now, but these are only available until the 15th of March so get in quick.
